'Grown Ups 2' actually exists and there are now two new posters to prove it. Despite being critically reviled, 'Grown Ups' made $162 million at the box office, making it one of Adam Sandler's highest-grossing films. Although it's hard to imagine anyone wanting a sequel (did anyone really like the first one?), the second outing of the man-children played by Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock and David Spade is set to hit theaters this summer.

'Guardians of the Galaxy,' Marvel's weirdest upcoming superhero film, may be looking for a strong anchor for the title (they may need to, it does feature a talking raccoon). Word is they're going out to both Adam Sandler and Jim Carrey for a role in the film.

Call us crazy, but we always imagined the author of the 'Twilight' fan fiction-inspired eBook turned actual book, 'Fifty Shades of Grey,' to be written by a real-life Jill from Adam Sandler's Razzie-winning 'Jack and Jill.' Turns out... we were kind of right.

'Hotel Transylvania' Review

"Bluh! Blobbity bluh blob blurr!" - the little animated vampire bat that the Columbia Pictures logo becomes at the beginning of 'Hotel Transylvania,' well representing the measure of humor in the film.
I'm gonna use the Z word. It's a word that usually elicits a binary response. Here it comes: zany. 'Hotel Transylvania' - the first feature film from underground animation legend Genndy Tartakovsky starring the voice and spirit of Adam Sandler and co-written by Robert Smigel (the man behind Triumph the Insult Comic Dog) - is a little bit clever, a little bit crafty, a little bit silly but, fundamentally, it is zany.

This year we're getting a deluge of spookily-themed kids movies that mix classic horror staples (ghosts, vampires and Frankenstein) with the soft edges of children's entertainment. Genndy Tartakovsky's 'Hotel Transylvania' comes between 'ParaNorman' and 'Frankenweenie,' and now there's a clip.

'Hotel Transylvania' Sneak Peek: Previewing Adam Sandler's Monster Comedy

The inventive and antic animation of Genndy Tartakovsky has been blowin' our mind during hazy late nights for years. The creator of 'Samurai Jack' and 'Dexter's Laboratory' as well as the first (and still superior) 'Star Wars: Clone Wars' has a wide palate (he's responsible for much of the look of 'The Powerpuff Girls' as well as the gruesome and bloody prologue to last year's 'Priest') but has always worked in traditional 2D animation.
With 'Hotel Transylvania' he's taking his first step into the feature film-friendly world of 3D computer imaging and the result, based on the selected scenes shown at Sony HQ in New York, are exciting. It's nothing too underground or subversive, but compared to factory line junk like 'The Lorax' it is quite an artistic achievement.
